Here’s some good news for hard-rock fans famil­iar with the old-school Canadian music scene: Triumph (Canada’s oth­er part-prog, part-heavy pow­er trio) is releas­ing a new great­est hits sound pack­age that has been remixed for mod­ern ears by a vet­er­an who has worked with their fel­low coun­try­men, Rush.  For those who don’t know the group, Triumph offered a more straight­for­ward, par­ty-hearty ver­sion of the tricky are­na rock that Geddy Lee and com­pa­ny were known for.  They were main­stays of ear­ly MTV and record­ed a few clas­sic beloved to AOR fans (Allied Forces is the all-time clas­sic).  This deluxe pack­age also includes a DVD and looks to be worth­while for both old fans and new acquain­tances.  Keep read­ing for all the are­na-rock­ing details…

Frontiers Records To Release Greatest Hits Remixed CD/DVD Package In Europe

TRIUMPH, the leg­endary Canadian Hard Rock trio formed by Gil Moore (drums and vocals), Mike Levine (bass and key­boards) and Rik Emmett (gui­tars and vocals) are releas­ing in Europe on Frontiers Records the newest Greatest Hits com­pi­la­tion pack­age on CD and DVD appro­pri­ate­ly titled Greatest Hits Remixed.

The two-disc set, which will be in the shops on May 14, includes a hit-laden 14 track CD, which was remixed by Rich Chycki (Aerosmith, Rush), giv­ing the songs an incred­i­ble son­ic wal­lop. A pre­vi­ous­ly unre­leased record­ing of “Love Hurts” will be the new lead sin­gle.

The DVD fea­tures 11 pro­mo and live videos in widescreen filmed over Triumph’s career, as well five bonus fea­tures, includ­ing three more unre­leased videos (“Child of the City,” “Blinding Light Show” and “Love Hurts”) and footage of Triumph’s induc­tion into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 2008.

We have been plan­ning this release forever,” says Mike Levine. “For years, Triumph fans have been demand­ing that we give them a fresh great­est hits pack­age and they are going to love this one.”

The six-pan­el digi­pak will also include a 20 page full colour book­let, com­plete with lin­er notes, lyrics, cred­its and chock­full of vin­tage pho­tos and will most cer­tain­ly be a hit with Triumph’s con­sis­tent legion of fans.

Triumph pushed the lim­its of Arena Rock to the max with their leg­endary live shows and vir­tu­oso play­ing. Add to it some of the most rec­og­niz­able and cel­e­brat­ed radio clas­sics (“Lay It On The Line”, “Hold On”, “Fight The Good Fight” and “Magic Power”), a vault full of gold and plat­inum sales awards for their ten stu­dio albums and there you have one of the most suc­cess­ful rock acts of the 1970‘s/1980’s

And now, fans both new and old will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to discover/re-discover Triumph, with the all killer/no filler Greatest Hits Remixed.

Frontiers looks for­ward to work with Triumph and plans more sur­pris­es for the fans of this amaz­ing band!
